  • Camp is located just north of Dundas Square, within the Ryerson School of Performance, at the corner of Gould and Yonge st. The street address is 345 Yonge st. 

We do a lot of physical activity and we ask that campers wear clothing and shoes that are practical, comfortable and suitable to move in.

  • Running shoes, sneakers, or dance shoes are advised, as flip-flops and shoes that are easily kicked off are unsafe during our activities. 
  • Clothing must not restrict movement. Shirts must be long enough that with hands raised above the head, the student’s midriff will still be covered.
  • Dresses and Skirts are only permitted if athletic shorts/leggings are worn underneath.
  • On performance days, our staff may have specific requests regarding the colour or type of clothes your camper wears. This information will be communicated before the performance day. Please don't feel the need to purchase anything new for performance days, whatever you have at home already will be perfect!
  • Refillable water bottle 
  • Sweater
  • 2 snacks and a nut-free lunch (unless signed up for the catered lunch program)

To aid in the finding of lost items, we recommend that all items brought to camp be labeled with the students name.
